The Starter Tethering Kit from Tether Tools gives you all the essential gear needed to create a secure data connection between your camera and computer for a tethered workflow. This kit comes with a orange USB 2.0 cable that is equipped with a Type-A male connector on one end and a USB mini-B 5-pin male connector on the other side, making it compatible with digital cameras. This USB 2.0 cable is 15′ long and transmits data at a rate of up to 480 Mb/s.
Tether Tools includes two JerkStoppers that remove the strain placed on the computer and camera’s ports from the connecting cable and help ensure the cable stays connected. For preventing tangles, ten ProTab cable ties keep the power, video, and other types of cables well managed and organized. In addition, this kit provides a Tether Tools organization case, so you can store the included cable, cable retention devices, and cable ties.
Please note that only the USB cable is covered by a limited 90-day warranty that does not guard against wear and tear.
